Beddau Halt railway station is a railway station at Beddau, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Wales.

It consisted of a single platform and shelter reached by steps leading from the road over which the line crossed. Its position was quite a distance from Beddau which limited its patronage, though all trains stopped at the station as a matter of course.

Modern Day[edit]

The station site exists on the mothballed Pontyclun-Cwm Colliery line over which trains ran regularly until 1984. No trace of the platform exists.
